Mirrors for Psychic Warfare to Release Self-Titled Debut on Neurot

Not that either Scott Kelly or Sanford Parker really needed another line on their CV, but the Mirrors for Psychic Warfare collaboration between the two Corrections House bandmates who also count Neurosis (Kelly) and Buried at Sea (Parker) in their pedigree does sound pretty god damn awesome. Info on the forthcoming self-titled debut on Neurot Recordings is down to the essentials — tracks, art, “Spring” release date — but if you want to get introduced to the project, and yes, you do, there are a couple live videos around the TubesofYou and I found a particularly awesome full set from last March in Toulouse, France, that you can see below. Apparently it was a house show? I’d have these dudes play my living room. Any night of the week.

The PR wire fills in even as it teases the prospect of droned-out glories to come:

MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE Featuring Neurosis’ Scott Kelly And Buried At Sea’s Sanford Parker To Release Self-Titled Debut Via Neurot Recordings

Scott Kelly (Neurosis) and producer/engineer/sonic warlord Sanford Parker (Buried At Sea) are restless. This inquietude has culminated into another collaboration. The two work together in Corrections House, a project that also features the talents of Mike IX Williams of Eyehategod, and Bruce Lamont of Yakuza. While Corrections House seem hell-bent on impersonal bludgeon and unfettered terror, the pair’s latest project — MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE — is far more restrained.

The band’s haunting self-titled debut is the sonic manifestation of insomnia, complete with the tossing, the turning, and the perennial dread that comes with facing another shabby daylight. The five songs lurch and pulsate across a desolate landscape with an almost curious obsessiveness. While Mirrors For Psychic Warfare may remind some of the best work on the classic Cold Meat Industry label, there is enough familiar Kelly/Parker-isms scattered throughout to keep the album stimulating. It is a work with more in common with a fever or a fitful wraith than a record.

Mirrors For Psychic Warfare was realized and recorded by both Kelly and Parker at Actual 13 Studio and Hypercube respectively over the course of 2015. The record was mixed and mastered by Parker and will see release this Spring via Neurot Recordings.

Mirrors For Psychic Warfare Track Listing:
1. Oracles Hex
2. A Thorn To See
4. I’ll Try You All
5. 43

Further info on Mirrors For Psychic Warfare – including final street date, preorders and track teasers – to be unveiled in the weeks to come. Until then, ache.
